How to use

wow fuck android
the general platform is fundamentally broken and even the open source applications are hilariously broken for many reasons
you have no way of distinguishing client and non-client area in general when you visit web, so have fun distinguishing ads from real UI elements - very needed when you want to distinguish ads. since you can't block ads without rooting reliably, rooting is required to have usable Android experience
if you visit a website and you want to download a specific image you can typically long-press it - unless shitty scripts break the functionality, in which case it results in endless "I long-press a button, some random text gets selected"
sometimes it may result in you actually managing to trigger the popup
but sometimes nope
on normal PC you would just "inspect element" that shit out
and in general it's bullshit when you actually want to anything beyond "consume internet content"

Basic ground rules on multithreading

Following the analogy of basic ground rules, here I'm trying to come up with a similar list for multithreading.

  1. Nothing is thread safe unless effort has been made to make it thread safe.
  2. You can't assume that composition of two thread safe operations (g(f());) or objects is thread safe itself. This is a special case of the rule 1.
